Thus endeth the weekend

By Tara Zandra | January 25, 2009

We finally got Tabitha and her friend to go to sleep around 12:45am. They did their nails as I predicted, but also painted their toenails and applied lip gloss and made a little sign that it was “Tabitha and G’s mini-makeover!!! BFFs only!” Too cute! They watched almost all of High School Musical 2 when something happened with the DVD player and they decided they were tired anyway. But then they snuggled into sleeping bags and spent time giggling and I was informed today they made up new versions of the 3 Little Pigs. That’s a fun game for 2 highly imaginative and literary kids :) They slept until quarter of nine this morning and then had donuts and played a High School Musical DVD game until it was time for G to go home. Tabitha told me it was the best sleepover ever that she’s either had or been to so I guess she had a fun time.

Right after it was just the four of us again, I said “Let’s get shoes on and go to Disneyland!” Oh the girls were thrilled! It’s been raining around here and today is really the only day of reprieve so I figured it wouldn’t be packed and why not? Chris, of course, was thoroughly on board as he loves being there as much as I do. Let me tell you, it was the perfect day. I don’t see how it could have been better. We rode Splash Mountain, which was Daisy’s very first time and got fairly soaked. Daisy thought the ride was fun, but was rather upset there were water spots on her dress. We consoled her and showed her how we were all wet and assured her the spots would go away. Eventually I just told her she had to stop crying or people would think she had been afraid of the ride and that helped her a bit. But then we went to see Pooh Bear and Tigger and all her woes were forgotten.

Next was on the Tiki Room where the flowers did indeed croon and then a quick ride through Buzz Lightyear. Next we split for a little bit with Chris taking Daisy on Thunder Mountain and Tabitha and I doing some browsing in the shops. Then it was King Arthur’s Carrousel and then Autopia before heading home. Both on the way there and the way home we rocked out to White Stripes so even the drives were wonderful :)

Tomorrow I really need to find a way to get my living room back to order and put fairy houses back into the girls’ room.

    I guess great minds think alike — as we were getting out of the car at home, Gillian said, “That was the best sleepover I’ve ever been to!” :D
